The friendships in my life are one of the most important things to me. I’ve been able to spend the past week laughing with my friends, crying with them, hugging and smiling together, and just being each other with one another. My friends are the glue that keeps me together and they make my life so much more meaningful. We are making big changes this year, and we are growing up separately in distance, but together in heart. As we set off in different directions and don’t see each other quite as often, I feel even more thankful to have them in my life.
On one of our last days as a group, I made these bellinis to celebrate us and the start of our new year filled with personal growth and new memories to be made. Guava is a typical hispanic snack served with cheese and crackers, and I love the sweet flavor it has, kind of like apricots. Mixed with coconut water and topped with prosecco, the sweetness dulls just a touch to achieve this yummy drink.
Here’s to fresh starts and old friends that make your life so much more beautiful.
- 1 cup guava paste
- 2 cups coconut water
- 1 bottle prosecco
